Officer Nero

Summary: One of the six officers charged for their involvement of 25-year-old Freddie Gray a year ago was found not guilty on all charges.

The second Baltimore police officer charged with involvement in the tragic death of Freddie Gray received his judgment today. Judge Barry Williams found Officer Edward Nero not guilty of all charges. The ruling took Williams 20 minutes to read in the crowded courtroom where he stated there was no evidence supporting any of the charges.

Nero, one of the three bike officers involved, had been charged with second-degree intentional assault, reckless endangerment, and two counts of misconduct in office.

The verdict drew outrage on social media but approval from the police. President of Fraternal Order of Police Lodge No. 3, Lt. Gene Ryan is pleased with the ruling but still concerned with the other five officers awaiting their own trial. Ryan continued in his statement by accusing State’s Attorney Marilyn Mosby of charging the officers to make the rioters in the city after Gray’s death happy instead of focusing on a “meaningful investigation.” His statement read, “None of these Officers did anything wrong. Officer Nero is relieved that for him, this nightmare is nearing an end. Being falsely charged with a crime, and being prosecuted for reasons that have nothing to do with justice, is a horror that no person should ever have to endure.”

Nero’s lawyer Marc Zayon stated, “The State’s Attorney for Baltimore City rushed to charge him, as well as the other five officers, completely disregarding the facts of the case and the applicable law. Officer Nero is appreciative of the reasoned judgment that Judge Barry Williams applied in his ruling.”
